LAUNCH A GALLERY of more Flickr reader photos.

“The sun had just come out after a brief shower of rain and caught the water droplets on this golden orb spider web at just the right angle to make her look even more spectacular as usual,” says Brad Warland.

Brad is a self-employed tiling contractor, avid bushwalker and amateur photographer. “I love how all my senses are much more atuned to whats going on around me whilst bushwalking,” says Brad. “Since my interest in photography has gone to new levels with the wonderful advent of DSLR cameras, I like to try and capture what I see, from large vistas to the smallest insects, birds and animals. This is more for a record of where I have been and what I saw, but it’s really exciting when you capture something out of the ordinary and capture it well.”
